If you’ve been to my old, experimental, free-Wordpress.com blog, you’ll know this isn’t the original The Rara Corner. But I changed domain name, hosting, and layout recently because I felt the need to step up my game as I mean real business and branding this time (well, why not make what you enjoy your bread and butter? 😀 ). And as I’ve written quite a few already in my original blog, I decided to just transfer/ copy some of them to this new platform. This Facts-About-Me section is among those earlier works I’ve written on my original blog, though I revised and oomphed it a bit more as well. Anyhow, the purpose of re-posting this here is to give my new visitors an idea of what to expect on this blog. Hence, here again are ten clues of what this blog may turn out to be:
1. I’m not a literary writer, rather I consider myself only a ruminator who uses writing as tool for idea dissemination. Also, for a double purpose, I write to cure my dyslexia.
2. I am a musician in training. I specialize in classical singing and piano.
3. If you ask me what I’m most passionate about, it’s creating and growing things. I find music and business mediums of creating awesome projects.
4. I take language lessons when I can afford. I speak and write a little Chinese and Japanese, and understand a little Korean. I’m looking forward to focusing on a foreign language or two this 2018 after I finish my undergrad.
5. I occasionally make ear training exercises and tutorials on Youtube. If you’re a music student or if you’re preparing for conservatory, search Hermit Academy(or simply click link below) and SUBSCRIBE.
6. I have two cats named Tyrion and Drogon.
7. I don’t play games. The only games I play are Kanji quiz games, JLPT quiz games, ear training games, and blogging if you consider those games.
8. I’m more into nonfiction though I have a penchant for some of the classics. My favorite books are To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee (reminds me of my childhood at my rustic, little, sub-urban village in the mountains) and A Wisdom Of History by Rufus Fears.
9. My favorite animes are Welcome to the NHK, Nodame Cantabile, Code Geass, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, and 12 kingdoms.
10. I love Rachmaninoff. His Piano Concerto No. 2 and Anna Fedorova’s playing (along with Chiaki’s and Nodame’s playing) move me the most.
